About The Owner

We are a family of 6 who enjoy renting our home to others who will enjoy it as much as we do. We take pride in keeping it both quaint/cozy with a rustic decor, as well as up to date with modern conveniences like dishwasher, washer/dryer, newer kitchen & Wireless Internet.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Poconos

We purchased this lakefront home simply to enjoy the Poconos, ourselves, all season long - We furnished the house indoor and out, as if we would be using it (and we do!) and found that we enjoy renting it out to others who find the house as enjoyable as we do. :) This house will be part of our family for many years to come and be handed down to our children.

What makes this house unique

We love the firepit, the two fireplaces, the 2 decks overlooking the lake and the BBQ grill outside. We like to sit on either the upper or lower deck and look out at the lake and enjoy the calm of the water. Sometimes at night, if you sit in the downstairs living room (there are two!) and look out at the water through the sliding doors, it almost appears as if you are on a boat because the moon glows onto the water while the water slowly ripples from the breeze. Another thing we love it sitting right by the water's edge and enjoying a roaring fire in the firepit. You just cant beat it - it's a great experience. In the summertime, we bring inflatable rafts and boat off the backyard. In the winter time when it is cold enough and the lake is frozen solid over, we enjoy ice skating right off the backyard. All season fun... love it!

Great home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time at this property. There was plenty of room and the house gave a warm home feeling as opposed to some other homes we stayed at that were plain. We look forward to renting this property again. Great communication with the owners.

Great Summer Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this rental property. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out (6 adults & 7 children). The neighborhood is very nice and the people are extremely helpful. We swam at the pools, rented pattle boats at the lake, used the tennis courts, fished off the dock, and even floated on rafts right off the back dock. The property was amazing, almost every night we sat by the firepit hanging out and making memories. In the yard we fed deer right out of our hands, saw a beaver in the lake, and even got scared by a skunk. While on vacation there we were able to do such activities as zip lining at Camelback, bowling, go carts, trolley tours of the water gap, hibachi grill dinners, and even took a day trip to Dorney Park. The weather was cool in the evenings which made for great sleeping. There was definatly plenty to do within the community as well as the surrounding area. The owners Jill and Mike were always polite and quick to get back to you with any questions or concerns almost immediately. They made you feel welcomed. We definetly had an amazing week and would highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you had a wonderful time! We really take to heart when folks create lasting memories in our lakehouse that they will cherish for years to come! That is our ultimate goal! We hope you have a wonderful remainder of your summer! :) (I will have to check out the zip line at Camelback - I did not know about that one!) :)

Wonderful week with family

  • 5 of 5

Sometimes life gets in the way of what is truly important. Family. We see them when our schedule allows. Then we all got together for one precious week at this wonderful lake house. Ranging in age from 3 to 77, there was something for everyone. We kayaked, canoed, tubed, fished, grilled, played games, rested, talked and laughed to our hearts content. The highlight of my 77 year old mother's week was hand feeding a beautiful doe that stopped by the yard on two occasions. She can't stop talking about it. My 3 year old grandson said he wanted to stay at the "happy house". I know this week can never be recreated and that makes it all the more special. Also, visits to the candle shops, outlets, antique mall (a must for collectors), watching fireworks on the dock on July 4th. As you can tell we had a wonderful time and the house was just what we needed. Plenty of room inside and out. We will all carry the memories from this week in the Pocono's for years to come.
